Mindspun hosting does not allow FTP access to your site but instead uses the far more secure SFTP. Note: not FTPS.
Depending upon your OS, there are numerous clients available, but in this How-To, we’ll use the command-line version, where the commands are nearly the same regardless of the operating system.
Authentication is passwordless using SSH keys. Set up your SSH Keys, then
- Username: <site_id>
- Hostname: <server hostname>
A typical connection looks like the following, assuming the above credentials.
$ sftp wps-63ade12f3dac66c8.mindspun.io Connected to wps-63ade12f3dac66c8.mindspun.io. sftp> \quit
You may use any hostname for your site.
The sftp command takes you to the
wp-content folder of your site, and from there, you can modify any files you choose.
